    Dear Uncle Leonard I know you will be so missed. You were always the first one my daddy (Horace) your brother wanted to visit when we came to South Carolina. I remember you were always so soft spoken. God Bless your family, who will miss you so. But I know you’re going to a better place, please tell my parents I said hello.
